How to make the totally unsupported Lexmark X Work. For the Eee PC or other Debian-based distros choose the first option Debian 4 and download the following driver file approx 30MB to your home folder: Don’t connect the printer yet. Right-click on the downloaded file and choose “Extract All You will now also have the same file but unzipped so it ends in sh.

If you can’t get the installer to run ad-dins clicking the icon, open a terminal and try the following: Now follow the instructions on screen. When you get to the point where it asks you to connect the printer, do adc-ins.

However, you will find it won’t lezmark recognised because it’s not a series or Z series printer. Exit by clicking the close button on the window and then clicking “Yes”. The following ads-ins in a terminal will open each of the relevant files in a text editor: Now add the printer using the CUPS interface.

On the next page, in the Device dropdown list, select: However, I found doing it this way did not set the A4 paper size properly so that multiple-page printing did not work correctly.

Finally click on “Print Test Page” and keep your fingers crossed The scanner should work as well, although only from the computer not from the scanner button on the printer. There is also a Lexmark inkjet program to monitor ink levels and align the cartridges type lexijtools in a terminal. However I could not get this to work – probably it doesn’t recognise the different cartridges in the X I’m hoping it doesn’t matter on the X series as an alignment sheet can be printed by holding the scan button for 3 seconds, then place it on the scanner glass and press the button again.

You sir are amazing. This deservers a bump as it probably works for many printers not just the X – one needs only go dmesg grep lp and look at their printer’s PID. So instead of B, it might be A, for example. I’d like to bump this up once more, I found the same solution on the aforementioned website and it works like a charm! I’ve been trying forever to get my damn Lexmark X working with Ubuntu and with this solution I finally got it to work!


I was trying to install the script but, there is an error that says the CUPS is not the last version, it needs the 1. Hey guy I can get all the way to the screen that says need to enter admin password but it wont accept mine, and I know it is correct, any thoughts?

Worked like a charm If only Lexmark would support Linux better.

Hi All, I am trying to install an X and was hoping that these instructions would work. Unfortunately the print job is failing with the following error stopped “A wrong printer is detected. Any printjobs are canceled. Has anybody else had similar problems? Has anybody found a solution? Thanks in advance Nick Bloor. Sorry all, School boy error!!

Thanks to Letocharm I have fixed the problem. I have the same problem. What add-iins I add-ijs

Hey ktsteel and billcecil, I was having that same problem and it’s a very simple fix. The trouble is that it’s looking for the ‘root’ password, and I’m guessing you’re using an OS that uses sudo instead of root, right? Yeah, so you don’t have a root password, you have a sudo password. Anyway, to get around that just execute the script with sudo, e. I haven’t got it running yet having troubles with the cups 1. I’ve been looking for this for over a year now Well, I got it working just fine if the printer is plugged directly into my Ubuntu box.

Trouble is, I usually have it connected to a laptop that serves as a print server. Honestly, I’m thinking my troubles lie in the fact that the “server” is Windows XP, due to the fact that before today I couldn’t use the printer with anything but Windows. I’m using the exact same driver as I did when connected directly using USB. When printing over the network, my Ubuntu box gives me an error. If anyone can help me out with this, that would be awesome. Otherwise, I’ll take what I can and simply connect this computer directly to the printer it’s a laptop anyway when I need to print, which is rarely.

Thanks Joedulin, but I tried the sudo thing and still had no luck.

I get through the setup until it asks for root password. I had to change the sudo password. Thanks for the help. I might get this stuff down some day.

Hello and thank you! Maybe even more than the printing. Hi, thanks this worked perfectly for me! Can you please provide me some informations about what should i do exactly in here. This i my CUPS 1. Hi, I’m a new Ubuntu I guess what I’m asking is if someone can spell out exactly what I’m supposed to type to get through the root password thing so I can continue installing the driver for my x I’ve managed everything up until going into the CUPS interface I have Cups installed in synaptic, is there any other package I need and then how do I run it?


I’ll answer my own question If you go to a command line and run the app from there with sudo it should work fine. It won’t ask for the root password during the install process.

Hope that helps, and thanks for the great post! This helped a lot! THanks, Specific instructions on installation on Ubuntu 9.

Download the debian drivers from the lexmark website here http: Then open a terminal and enter the following: Following the directions at the beginning of this post has NOT yielded good results for me however, and am unable to print or scan in ubuntu I had this working in Karmic, have installed Oneiric and am now in a mess. I can do everything up to: Can anyone shed any light!?

I also have this same problem any help would be great.: Bit of a bump to the top – has anyone any new workaround around the new CuPS issue? I think this bug is related to the problem. I gave up and bought an Epson, still don’t like having my printer turned into a brick though – any update on this bug? I checked the support page for Lexmark.

How to make the totally unsupported Lexmark X Work [Archive] – Ubuntu Forums

Am I just missing something incredibly obvious? I’ve just started learning ubuntu. I’m sure I can alter the x driver to work with my x I know its an ancient printer, but it works great for me. I love to implement the solution provided in this thread. Can anybody help me find this x driver? I found the x link just by filtering for that not also OS http: It closes immediately and I couldn’t copy and paste the error text, so I’m not sure what happened.

Current status for me is that I can’t even get through the Lexmark installation. There are a couple threads on the forums about this not always easy to find but the short answer is the installer must be run as root. Unfortunately, the easiest way to do this is from a command line. Open up a terminal. Navigate to the folder where your extracted download is cd Downloads, or wherever your lexmark-inkjet Type ‘sudo su’ no quotes and enter your password.

This will allow the installer to run. Unfortunately, there is a new bug that has always existed in the driver that now affects newer versions of Ubuntu it was working fine in So the installer still fails for me.
